Unemployment is real ya’ll and especially out here in Atlanta, early this morning some robbers robbed customers at the Waffle House in Buckhead off of Piedmont rd. There were no injuries, it happened at around 6:30 this morning.
I’m pretty sure they were coming from The velvet Room and were followed by whoever was watching them that night.
According to the AJC.com, Atlanta police spokeswoman Kim Jones said three men were robbed of nearly $40,000 in jewelry and iPhones.
She said the victims, who had previously been at the Room Service Lounge, arrived at the Waffle House and sat in a booth at the back of the restaurant by the restrooms. About five minutes later, the two suspects entered and sat down at the counter. A few minutes after that, the suspects got up and went to the booth where the victims were sitting. One sat down while the other stood at the end of the table, Jones said.
She said the suspect sitting down “produced a black semi-automatic handgun,” pressed it into the ribs of one of the victims, and said, “don’t move or say anything. I’ll shoot you right here,” and “give me your watch and gold chain.” The suspects took a $6,000 gold chain and medallion and a diamond-covered Rolex watch valued at $20,000 from one victim, a Rolex Submariner watch valued at $12,000 and a $500 iPhone from the second victim and an iPhone 5 valued at $500 from the third victim.
The suspects then left the restaurant and fled on foot. Police have not released a detailed description of the robbers. So I guess they didn’t bother asking for some food like Kane did in the movie Menace ll Society?
People with money don’t seem to understand that people from all walks of life go to nightclubs. You are usually rubbing shoulders with a criminal or two. If they see you with something they want, money, women, or status, they have no problem taking it or bringing you down a peg or two.
